RizeUp Gaming presents the 2nd Annual Porter Chatterton Cystic Fibrosis Charity Marathon Fundraiser (We know it’s a long name, but it’s long because it’s badass and double the awesome!!!) .
For those who don’t already know, Porter Chatteron is a young boy who lives with Cystic Fibrosis. Cystic fibrosis (CF), also known as mucoviscidosis, is an autosomal recessive genetic disorder that affects most critically the lungs, and also the pancreas, liver, and intestine and effects about 30,000 children and adults in the United States (70,000 worldwide). It is characterized by abnormal transport of chloride and sodium across an epithelium, leading to thick, viscous secretions. Cystic Fibrosis is a defective gene and its protein product cause the body to produce unusually thick, sticky mucus that clogs the lungs and leads to life-threatening lung infections, and obstructs the pancreas and stops natural enzymes from helping the body break down and absorb food.
So be their March 17th – March 23rd on www.twitch.tv/rizeupgaming for the amazing marathon full of gaming action. We have some awesome prizes from our sponsors including Gunnars, Steelseries, Lootcrate, Overkill Software and many many more. We hope to see you there!

WeWana:Play was created when their CEO Deepak was spending more time trying to get ahold of his friends than actually playing with them.

Moreover, Rizeupgaming and WeWana:Play will be partnering in the creation of a new app to help gamers make positive connections with one another and escape the toxicity of online gaming.
